The Community

Helping Each Other Grow Stronger Businesses

"If you want to go fast, go alone. 

If you want to go far, go together."

You know first-hand that being an ethical entrepreneur is not easy.

You have such a strong desire to make a positive change but the nitty-gritty day-to-day "doings" of business often absorb your focus and attention. 

Where you thought you would be by now and where you actually are, are very different places. 

Keeping your ultimate goal in mind is so important in business.  

It is particularly important for change-making businesses because your ultimate goal includes making the world better. 

Personally, the best thing I've done for my business is to seek out other business owners. 

Coaches, mentors, and networking groups have helped me tremendously in keeping my vision alive. 

⇒ privately share your celebrations and your frustrations with like-minded peers and colleagues.

⇒ ask advice from other gentle earth entrepreneurs who have been there and understand your unique business challenges.

⇒ source products or supplies from businesses you can trust have the same ideals as you.

⇒ forge partnerships so every business in our community has the opportunity to grow.

⇒ share marketing ideas and test your copy before you spend money and send it out into the world.

The Gentle Earth Business Network Community

Private Facebook Group

They have moved me closer to fulfilling my vision than I could have ever gotten on my own. 

But here's what I've never found... 

I have never found an online community designed specifically for socially-conscious and green business owners. 

Have you?

That's why I created THIS Community - especially for YOU!

It's a private Facebook group where you can collaborate with other socially-conscious and green business owners.

This is YOUR space.

These are YOUR people.

You should never feel you need to do it alone.

A professional community of like-minded people will help you develop your ideas and solidify your dreams far faster than you can manage on your own because they understand precisely the hurdles you are trying to overcome.

This is where you can:

They've supported me when I've not known what to do next. 

They've given me ideas for a different way to tackle a problem. 

They've nudged me forward when it felt safer to stand still. 

I've made friends and partnerships.

I believe in the power of a supportive community to move you closer to your goals. 

I also believe in order to reach our potential, we need a place where we can share honestly - our ups, our downs, our challenges and our celebrations - without the worry of public opinion or having to appear like we have it all together when sometimes we simply don't. 

That's why this is a private Facebook group. No-one but the members can see or respond to anything that is shared in the group. 

If we are to develop as people and business owners, we need to feel that we can share honestly and be supportive of others. 

Your business started as a seed. It needs constant nourishing if it is to grow to your biggest vision.  

African Proverb

The overarching philosophy of The Gentle Earth Business Network Community is that as a group, we are grounded in the positive mindset that we are all working toward a better home for our global family through businesses that support a healthy planet and healthy people.

We’re a group of business owners who, like you, believe that a profitable business can be humane, sustainable, and attainable while staying in alignment with our environmental values.

We believe it because we’re doing it!

This is a group where positivity prevails.

We all face struggles and set-backs as our businesses take root and grow in our world. While you are welcome and encouraged in this group to share those frustrations with your peers, this is not a place for organizing activism.

This is NOT a place to organize protests or share petitions. 

This is NOT a "networking" group - as in feeling like you have to be "on" and "together".

You are free to come as you are, with your struggles, questions and challenges.

This is NOT a place for you to be selling your wares or services to others in the group.

While collaborations are encouraged, they should come naturally with the mutual benefit of all involved. 

It's the difference between forcing connection and allowing connections to flourish naturally. 

The Philosophy

What The Gentle Earth Business Network Community is NOT:

How will you feel a year from now if you are still in the same place?

Imagine how your business will grow with the support of people who want you to succeed as much as you do.

Like-minded business owners will keep you focussed, grounded, motivated and optimistic - which is imperative if you really want to reach your goals. 

It all begins in conversation, collaboration, mutual respect, an outlook for the greater a word: Community

The Gentle Earth Business Network Community is a safe, nurturing and encouraging place for you to grow your socially-conscious and green business to its highest value and purpose; that of creating positive change for a healthy and sustainable world.  

  • Share your celebrations with people who truly understand what it took you to get there.
  • Get support for your most pressing challenges around your business growth.
  • Offer support to others so they too can create change faster.
  • We'll also set times for live calls where we can get to know each other a little bit better.

How does it work?

"I'm really busy already. How much of a time commitment will this group be?"

That's entirely up to you. 

Some people will find they use the group a lot, some only a little. 

There may be times when you need more support than other times so your participation ebbs and flows. 

It's all okay and it's all good. 

We're here for each other as needed. That's the foundation of a community. 

Think of it like a water cooler where you can pop over anytime and chat with others who are hangout out ready for refreshment.

Yours is a Gentle Earth business because you've developed it with a deep caring for our world and the people and creatures living on it. 

The triple bottom line (3P's: People, Planet & Profit) philosophy is a guide for you to know you are with the right group of people here.

Here, we are all simply trying to make the world a better place.  

Your business is a Gentle Earth business because you are... 

  • gently creating positive social and/or environmental change, 
  • gently shifting consumer consciousness, 
  • gently providing healthier working conditions and lifestyles, 
  • gently proving there is a better way to do business. 

"This sounds great. It's just what I need. But is mine a Gentle Earth Business?"

source environmentally friendly, ecologically sustainable and organic products and ingredients as much as possible.

be on the lookout for new products or methods that are socially and environmentally responsible.

find ways to reduce their environmental impact.

be cognizant of, and source products and materials from, fair-trade labour markets.

make a positive difference to individuals, communities and/or the environment through their products and services. 

You are gently creating a healthier earth for us all.
